The Taiwan issue is China’s internal matter, China’s foreign ministry said after US and Chinese foreign ministers Antony Blinken and Wang Yi met in New York on Friday. And, “If Taiwan’s pro-independence activism becomes more aggressive, the chances of a peaceful settlement of the issue will be less likely.”
Official US sources said during the 90-minute meeting on the sidelines of the General Assembly session United Nations In New York, the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken He told Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that “maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait is absolutely critical.”
The above has been stated in the statement issued by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs after this meeting America They are sending “very bad, dangerous signals” to Taiwan, and “the more aggressive Taiwan’s pro-independence activity, the less likely it is to resolve the issue peacefully.”
“The Taiwan issue is China’s internal matter, and the United States has no right to interfere in what method we use to resolve it,” Wang said in a statement from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
Tension between US and China over Taiwan
Tensions between the U.S. and China over Taiwan rose after the visit of the president of the U.S. House of Representatives in August. Nancy Pelosi on the island. A few days ago the President Joe Biden He said the US would defend Taiwan in the event of an “unprecedented attack” from China.
According to commentators, the Biden statement may be a step away from Washington’s longstanding policy of “strategic ambiguity” on Taiwan, which leaves it unclear whether the US will respond militarily to a Chinese invasion.
China considers the democratically-ruled Taiwan part of its territory and seeks to take control of it without ruling out the use of force.
